More Information Released On Marshall '50 Years Of Loud Live' Concert On September 22


Marshall Amplification, who are currently in the midst of celebrating their 50th anniversary, have released further information on next months commemorative live concert at Wembley Arena. Billed as ’50 Years Of Loud Live’, the concert has already been touted as ‘a one night only chance to see so many rock legends perform in one place’, and now with further information just released, it sounds like it will be that and more.

So far, some of the world’s most credible guitarists have joined the bill, which is also a tribute to Marshall Amps founder, Jim Marshall who passed away in April this year. Other artists including world renowned drummers and bass players that wouldn’t automatically be associated with such a huge guitar amplifier brand like Marshall have also offered their services for the evening, wanting to be part of such a landmark event. 

Every artist on the night will be accompanied by a world class house band that has been put together purposely for this event. Consisting of members from bands such as Bad Company, Whitesnake and Ozzy Osbourne, the house band will provide the consistent back bone for the evening’s entertainment. 

Artists playing at the event have had free choice on what they want to play, but at the same time it was suggested they include something different from the norm, something people won’t be able to see them do again anytime soon. Confirmed artists for historic event include Corey Taylor, Joe Satriani, Yngwie Malmsteen, Zakk Wylde, Paul Gilbert, Kerry King, Mike Portnoy, Brian Tichy, Doug Aldrich, Nicko McBrain, Billy Duffy, and many others. 

Aside from the huge amounts of musical skill on the night, the concert will also be a place for Marshall fans to become part of the 50th anniversary, with specially produced videos that charter the origins of the company, the artists that helped put them on the map, and much more including a special tribute to founder Jim Marshall. 

The ‘Marshall Collection’ will incorporate various displays around Wembley, including the holy grail of tone ‘Marshall Amp #1’ alongside some other incredibly vintage and rare products. There will also be a display of artist related Marshall items, not only amps used or signed by various rock legends, but guitars and personal memorabilia displayed alongside them too. This will be the first and only time Marshall have let such items out from their own museum, located at their factory in Milton Keynes, UK.
